3. Kevin De Bruyne(Manchester City)- €150 million
The Belgian is one of the best footballers in the world at the moment and his playing style has often seen him described as the complete footballer. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola quotes reveal how crucial he is to the team as he said:
"I think he is a special, outstanding player. He makes everything. Without the ball, he is the first fighter, and with the ball he is clear – he sees absolutely everything."
In the 2017-18 season, he notched up eight goals for Manchester City in his 37 appearances. The 27-year-old also played a vital role in their title-winning run which saw them clinch their third Premier League title with a Premier League record of 100 points from 38 games.
He also played a vital role in Belgium's World Cup 2018 campaign where Belgium thumped the likes of England and Brazil to reach the semi-finals of the all-important tournament and finished in the third place.
The Manchester City midfielder is now the third most valuable player in the Premier League with a value of €150 million.
